PANEL: From Climate Data To Technology Solutions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel looks at the intersection of climate data and technology development. There is no shortage of climate data from scientists, government agencies and private research organizations. The key is to choose the relevant data and figure out ways to create solutions from them that will help to minimize the impact of climate change. The panelists will discuss what types of data are a good fit for developing new technology and business models in sectors such as renewable energy generation, agriculture, energy efficiency and transportation. But having the right data alone isn't enough. The panelists will also talk about the challenges of making good use of the data and what new data will help accelerate the development and deployment of better solutions.
